Feeling Spring-y @ Your Maine Stamper

Lydia and I rearranged the store recently to feature stamps by season or occasion.  I'll take some pictures today and post them later, but this will give you an idea that we are definitely thinking SPRING.

The front table is green, green, green!  Everything you need to celebrate St. Patrick's Day whether you have some Irish heritage or you just want to add O' to your name for the day!   Stamps, ribbons, stickers, gems and buttons, papers--great for cards, scrapbook pages, gifts.

Rabbits--and chickens, ducks, lambs, etc.--are populating the tables by the checkout counter!  I'd say they are multiplying rapidly as new stamps have arrived from several of our favorite companies and more are on the way!

All the lovey-dovey items are on the top shelf of the big blue cabinet, perfect for engagements, weddings, anniversaries!

"First comes love, then comes marriage.  Then comes ____ with a baby carriage!"  Second shelf of the blue cabinet--all things baby!

We gathered all of the birthday stamps, both images and words, together in one place!  (Third shelf of the blue cabinet.)

The fourth and bottom shelf features our feathered friends!

All things vintage have their own table, too!  Great papers, stamps, mini books, wooden detailed embellishments, pearls, etc.

And what's on the big brown shelf?

Some of Courtney Ricker's largest and most popular designs are on the top shelf.  The majority of her stamps have their own corner in the second part of the store on the biggest shelving unit with some of the smaller images spilling over onto the blue wall shelves next to it.

Sympathy images and words

Large florals on cling foam with samples made by Penny Bennington (one of our teachers who has two articles in the February/March issue of Stamper's Sampler!).

Images and words

All things winter are now on the black bookcases in the second part of the store.

There's lots more in the store, too!  Memory Box stamps, dies, and notecards.  House Mouse, including a few new designs in this last week.  Stamps by Judith with some sweet little bunnies and carrots for Easter/spring.  Stamps with an Asian flair.  And paper, paper, paper.  12X12s.  6X6s.  8X8s.  Cardstock.  Bo Bunny dots, graphs, floral swirls.  Vellum.  

Stop in this week and see what's new!

We're expecting a bunch of boxes soon--including the much anticipated new stamps and dies from Memory Box's What's in the Box newest release.  

Monica tells me the wait is about two  to three weeks before we can expect it, but I've got my fingers crossed that it will arrive sooner than that!  Watch the blog and e-mails from Lydia when it arrives.  You won't believe  this latest collection!
